How would you describe a Green Mountain student? GMC students take the path less traveled. They arrive at the same place as many of their peers, but I think they are wiser for the journey.
What's the best place to hang out in the area? I live a bit north of Poultney--great paddling on the Otter Creek.
What's your favorite drink while working? Good ole' H20.
Favorite books: Just read Empire of the Sun, an interesting history on World War II in the Pacific written by an American but from the Japanese perspective.
Favorite movies: My Life as a Dog; Groundhog Day; Gallipoli
Favorite places: For stargazing, my back porch. For eating, the Black Sheep Bistro in Vergennes. For hiking, the Presidential Range in the White Mountains.
Favorite activity on a Saturday afternoon: Stirring up my compost pile and watching a few innings of a Red Sox game.
When I'm out traveling, I'm never without: Sneakers and my iPod.
Best part about Vermont: Every day is an adventure. Sun, snow, fall foliage--it's all here. Or maple syrup. Yeah, probably maple syrup.
Best advice for applicants: Think about what you want in a college--if you are looking for a place where faculty members are not just teachers but mentors this is the place for you. Every professor I know can tell me about graduates they are still in touch with. When you come to GMC you are part of a family--it's not just "four and done."
